You don't want to use email for this company. You want to use something more reliable such as xml. It is easy to insert some XML in your order.php model file that collects basic order information, writes it to XML and stores the xml file in a folder on the server. The shipping company will then be able to download this file and read it with their software or just basic notepad. This is what I do with my shipping company. They have access to FTP folder.

Well sure it can. You just add their email address to the mail procedure. But like I said email is not reliable 100% of the time so you need to use a more hard wired procedure such as ftp
